Future is now
We're almost there. After handing out the Golden Leopard the countdown occurs behind the scenes, with Mario Timbal passing the torch to Raphaël Brunschwig, Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Head of Sponsorship, soon to become the new Chief Operating Officer. Locarno70 ends like this, with a goodbye and a welcoming. Of course, Brunschwig doesn't need one, as he already knows the inner workings of the Festival and looks ahead to the dawn of Locarno71, the first edition with him at the helm, after going through the first, excellent stats of Locarno70.
